All Creatures Great and Small: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, March 2021 Edition, Vol. 46XXL

giants3All Creatures Great and Small:  Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, March 2021 Edition, Vol. 46XXL

     With the arrival of a theatrical film award season celebrating the achievements of a year completely invisible of theatrical entertainment, it has become more evident than ever before that the continuous sessions of gowned and tuxedoed inebriated trophy grabbing by the Hollywood elites has become a bold symbol of a cadre of increasingly uncreative “artists” so far removed from the reality of the experience of the average person that it explains the current detachment of the mainstream entertainment industry’s gratuitous reveling in vacuous fantasy while rejecting reflections of the human condition as pitiable grumblings of a great unwashed working class. In the uninspired minds of Hollywood royalty, they are the watchdog giantsgiantsgif of entitlement lording over the homunculi forming the rest of an ignorant and undeserving society. With this in mind, we bring you the latest installment in what we’re afraid is that continuous series of monthly irritations popularly known as the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you with admirable stubbornness by those happy folk who peddle SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy. In this edition, we present twenty five examples of Hollywood’s less offensive depictions of the giant and the infinitesimal. Your task is to identify the twenty five films and relay to us their true identity. As a result of such dedicated effort, the first to correctly identify every image will receive the much exalted though misunderstood CSR Culture Shock Award, essential in the successful practice of black magic and explaining the continued popularity of the McRib sandwich. Good luck.

I've been a puppet, a pirate, a pauper, a poet, a pawn and a king, not necessarily in that order. My first major movie memory was being at the drive-in at about 1 1/2 yrs. old seeing "Sayonara" so I suppose an interest in film was inevitable. (For those scoring at home- good for you- I wasn't driving that evening, so no need to alert authorities.)Writer, critic and confessed spoiler of women, as I have a tendency to forget to put them back in the refrigerator. My apologies.

    Here goes…

    1) Mothra.
    2) Frankenstein Conquers The World. (I think…)
    3) Three Worlds Of Gulliver.
    4) Attack Of The 50-Foot Woman. (The hand is the clue.)
    5) Nope.
    6) Fantastic Voyage. (Saw that at the cinema)
    7) Attack Of The Puppet People.
    8) Big Fish. (I didn’t like it.)
    9) Time Bandits.
    10) The Incredible Shrinking Woman. (Tomlin?)
    11) Babes In Toyland. (Even as a kid, I didn’t like it.)
    12) The Devil Doll. (Barrymore)
    13) War Of The Gargantuas. (These Japanese ones take me back. I went through a phase of watching ‘special seasons’ at the NFT in London. They did one on Japanese monster films.)
    14) The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad. (I preferred Sabu.)
    15) Village Of The Giants. (Beau Bridges?)
    16) Bride Of Frankenstein. (Elsa Lanchester)
    17) Dr Cyclops.
    18) The Amazing Colossal Man.
    19) Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.
    20) Tom Thumb. (Russ Tamblyn. )
    21) Peter Pan. (Silent film.)
    22) Downsizing. (Matt Damon.)
    23) Nope. (Can’t remember. Annoying!)
    24) Jason And The Argonauts. (Watched that again last year on TV.)
    25) The Thief Of Bagdad. (There’s Sabu!)

    Two nopes, one guess. A reasonably confident 22/25. Maybe 23, if number 2 is correct.
    Best wishes, S. Dastagir.

    This must be an easy quiz because I got more than two of them. I think.

    1. I’m guessing those are the Peanuts, so one of the Godzilla movies.
    6. Fantastic Voyage
    9. Time Bandits
    10. The Incredible Shrinking Woman
    16. Bride of Frankenstein
    17. Dr. Cyclops
    18. The Amazing Colossal Man
    19. Honey I Shrunk the Kids
    24. Jason and the Argonauts
    25. Thief of Bagdad (1940)

  4. I think #9 is Time Bandits. Other than that…I vaguely recognize some of the other images, but I can’t pinpoint the films…not my genre, I’m afraid, but I do really like Skittles…and Starburst. Enjoyed the post though.

    Okay, I have just had a bottle of ‘genuine’ Chianti, in less than 90 minutes. So I will have to get back to this another time.
    Regards, Count Ciano.
